Quiet, relaxing place to stay 15 mins south of New Plymouth. Room was immaculately presented. Wireless available. Beds were comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the owners Peter and Jeanette Utiger.

If you are looking for a quiet, immaculate, place to stay in Inglewood this is the place. The room we had was well presented and we got flowers. It looks as if it has been renovated recently. It had a well stocked kitchen, tiny bathroom with a wonderful shower (separate toilet) and a great bed to sleep in. Handy to... More

Thank you for that. I did want to say that your motel is a quiet gem. It was a real pleasure to find and stay there and the unit was top notch, up with the best I have stayed in and better than most. Kind regards Brian C

This motel was well-located to North Egomnt and therefore to the walking tracks that go round Mt.Taranaki. Staff were friendly and approachable. The room was clean and comfy and the facilties were fine for the time we were there.

Stayed here over a period of about 2 1/2 months. The room was very comfortable, and clean. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely stay again. Kitchen had facilities to cook a meal on hobs or a microwave oven. It is set back off the main street so you get a good night sleep with no traffic... More

What a great place!!!! Love the layout of the 2bedroom unit. Lovely deck, with direct access to backyard with a safe trampoline for the kids. Awesome shower pressure and large shower too. Normally we have to ask for more towels when we book for 2 adults and 2 kids, and for once I didn't have to ask... We got a... More

We stayed here for two nights after being recommended by our in-laws. For an older property the units are modern, quiet, comfortable beds, full kitchen, free Wi-Fi, and good pressure in the shower all for less than $100/night. We will definitely stay here again next time we are up in Inglewood.

The White Eagle is a really nicely presented, homely, well run and maintained motel. It is a little gem that many bigger center budget motel owners could learn a lot from. It is very well presented, fresh looking and very clean. The rooms are tidy and functional for a family. The hosts are genuine hosts, very friendly, approachable and happy... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with a group and found this motel to be outstanding. Modern, fresh and spotless rooms with plenty of space and everything at hand. Friendly owners offering great service along with lovely gardens and a yummy breakfast - we enjoyed our stay very much. Would stay again.
